With this new bill, those who are licensed gun owners may carry their guns into places that I believe may create problems that could be avoided.
What reason would a thinking person have for bringing a loaded gun into a bar? Not only is it possible that the licensed gun owner is drinking, but patrons at the bar may be drinking alcohol as well. Either or both could make an alcohol induced decision that might result in a tragedy.
Some may argue that bringing a loaded gun onto a school campus may have avoided some of the recent school shooting we have experienced here in America. I am wary of allowing loaded guns on any school campus even if the gun owners is licensed. If you look at the statistics, most of the school shooters don't have history that would have precluded them from obtaining a legal license.
Georgia's Safe Carry Protection Act allows licensed gun owners to bring loaded guns into public places, including bars, nightclubs, schools, churches and government buildings.
This is not a trend that I'd like to see spreading throughout America.
